Response to: Unfortunately, PHP5 sucks no less than PHP4

Unicode support is on my list of things that would be great to add to PHP 6. :)


But seriously, my Perl core language friends told me that incorporating Unicode into Perl was damn difficult and opened up all sorts of issues. So, while Unicode is necessary, it needs to be done correctly, and with all the new features in PHP 5, I don't think now is the right time.


Also, PHP 5 uses libxml2 to power its XML extensions, so you can use UTF-8 and other character encodings in your XML documents. You just may need to jump through a few hoops to get your data in there.
